It's a big night for HBO as Succession and The Righteous Gemstones sign off for the season, and Ballers airs its series finale. Other programming options include Sunday Night Football, two new documentary series, fresh installments of The CW's female superhero shows, and the dramatic return of an old favorite. Here are the highlights.
SEASON FINALE: The breakout hit of the summer, Succession closes out its sophmore year tonight as Logan (Brian Cox) wrestles with damage control (and the question of whom he should fire to salvage the company's reputation).

SEASON FINALE: In an echo of Logan Roy's troubles, Eli (John Goodman) ponders his children's futures in the family business, as The Righteous Gemstones reaches the conclusion of its first season.
